Guess your opinion isn't that unpopular!
I wouldn't mind updated visuals, but when my wife and I went to try playing again last year, I noticed that that the undead female head which looked exactly like an undead caricature of her was no longer in the game. Really bummed us out, but not nearly as much as the actual game did when we found ourselves soloing groups of really cool-looking mobs in the starting area and leveling 5 times in an afternoon. And when I realized hunters spawn with pets. Totally ruins the experience of getting your first pet. Sure I was a freshmen in high school when I got my first pet in wow, but that was some sentimental shit.
